Overview participating exhibitions
Fearing an invasion of his country, under his regime the Albanian Communist leader Enver Hoxha had about 750,000 bunkers built. Strangely enough, the effect was an increasing sense of insecurity among the population. Twenty years after the fall of Communism only outsiders still have an eye for the relics of the paranoid past. The way in which the bunkers are disappearing, or being repurposed for entirely new uses, affords an insight into the transformation process in the poorest country in Europe.
